No more than a dozen passengers are allowed on the yacht, so you don't have to worry about finding a choice viewing spot. The passionate and knowledgeable crew will get you as close as possible to the whales. They are mesmerizing!
Very enjoyable, lived up to all my expectations. Saw several whales
Really fun, definitely worth it, so exciting to see the whales. Very relaxing.
We had a great afternoon on the Katrina. Tony is a great guy, knowledgeable, relaxed and a good host. We saw one whale and would have liked to see more but on the way back we saw a big pod of dolphins many of which came up to, and beside, the boat. There was no strict time or hurry to get back and we had the boat to ourselves, which was a bonus. It is such a better way to go out to sea than on those large crowded boats. We will go out again with Tony in the Spring.
Tour guide was helpful, knowledge and even sympathetic when I was sea sick. Even though we didn't see any whales, he offered us another tour for free,vehich he really didn't have to do. He was great...
Tony is a very experienced, patient and all around nice guy!
He's been doing these tours for almost 14 years now but from his passion and motivation it seemed as he would just had been started.
A wonderful afternoon out on the ocean. Instead of being on a massive catamaran, jostling for a view, we had a relaxed time, just the skipper and the two of us (they take a max of 12). Tony, our skipper and host, was friendly, knowledgeable and determined to find us a whale. He found two, and the second one spent 45 minutes entertaining us with pirouettes and chin slaps - at least 45 of them. Tony didn't turn back, he just waited until the show was over, meaning that we were at sea an hour longer than advertised. Now that's service!
Tony is a very warm and friendly tour guide, perfect for the winter sydney weather, bespoke services on small group cruise. Tony is also very conscious to our comfort and tour experiences due to the choppy ocean waves once the boat leave sydney harbour.
Friendly and knowledgeable guide, small group in a small boat. More than met expectations.
We had a great day-Tony was very accommodating. There were only a total of 4 of us on the trip so we were very lucky. We followed a 9 metre hump back for 4 hours and were lucky enough to see it breach as well as flap it's tail several times. Highly recommend this trip which is personalised rather than being on boat with dozens of people
Tony and Biggles are amazing, we had a brilliant 4+ hours with them. We followed a mother and calf humped back whale with an escort, Biggles explained all about the whales while Tony sailed the boat, we sailed along side these whales for about an hour and saw them breach twice which was brilliant. Tony also sent us a picture that a boat opposite from us had sent to the Sydney Telegraph that showed one of the breaches with the Katarina behind and us onboard. Not something that you always get but a lovely momentous of the day, we could even pick ourselves out on the boat. The sail back to the harbour was also good with a few of the passengers taking the helm. Tony is very passionate about the whales and this shows in the time you have with him, he makes you very welcome aboard and takes care of you and the others while making sure those who felt sea sick were ok. Because the maximum is 12 on this trip you get a personnel experience of whale watching. Loved every minute.
